A combination of Claire and Fin being poorly and dire weather had prevented our planned over-nighter on Eileen, so today, it being the last day of the holidays, we decided to drive over to Braunston, have lunch and then go on to The Stoke Bruerne Gala Weekend.
Lunch at The Boat House coincided with a rare burst of sunshine and we sat outside in the garden, somewhat wistfully watching the boats pass by and wishing it was us.
Lunch was dire, quite possibly the worst meal I’ve had the misfortune to eat, there’s nothing positive I can say about it – truly awful.
Deteriorating weather and very tired kids meant that our visit to Stoke Bruerne was unfortunately cut short and we only saw a few of the working boats gathered there. Still it’s a delightful setting, and what we saw we made us determined to return on a quieter day, with (hopefully) less fractious/poorly children!
